Thank You for Listening

I hired Nancy to review a separation agreement, in preparation for a divorce. The agreement my husband and I had prepared with a mediator was not typical, but it made sense and felt right to both of us. Nancy clearly advised me of my legal rights, but she also listened carefully to my reasoning and left room for me to make my own decisions. I feel confident the agreement is the best it could be, given the two minds and hearts involved. Thank you, Nancy.



We hired Nancy to be our mediator, draw up our legal separation agreement and then file the divorce with the court. The process went amazingly smooth. She always responded promptly via email or phone. Nancy is a very intelligent and thorough attorney and her compassion for her clients is genuine.


Experienced, Conscientious, Highly Skilled Attorney

I hired Nancy to draft a QDRO and then an addendum to our Judgement of Divorce. Nancy is an exceptional attorney. She is knowledgeable, trustworthy, responsive and kind. I would rely on Nancy in a heartbeat for future services, and recommend her to any family member, colleague, or friend. Thank you Nancy for your positive energy and faithful service!


Mediated Divorce

I hired Nancy to help up through our legal separation and divorce. She guided us through the mediation process which was completely different than the usual adversarial divorce process. She is skilled, empathetic, and understanding of the emotional havoc dissolving a marriage can cause. Mediation was a much better path to take and we are grateful to Nancy for taking this route. Highly recommend Nancy to anyone going through a separation or divorce.

Literacy Specialist

Nancy was very professional and compassion. She was easy to relate to as well as understanding. I found her to be both fair and timely. This process worked very well for our situation. I would highly recommend her to any other parties looking to go through the mediation process.


Collaborative Divorce

Nancy was very helpful and methodical, making sure that every step was covered. The collaborative process allows the client to be a little more in control than going to court. Did it save time or money? That's tough to say and dependent on the parties on both sides being able to come to an agreement.

Collaborative Separation and Divorce

Nancy represented and advised me during a collaborative process aimed at marital separation and, eventually, divorce. She did an excellent job organizing and managing the process - and in managing me during what was the most difficult situation I have ever encountered. In retrospect, I am convinced that, in my case, the collaborative approach was clearly the best way to get this done while avoiding the collateral damage that can result from an adversarial process. Nancy had a key role in its success and I am highly pleased with her work.

Excellent Divorce Mediation Service

5Nancy Giardina was excellent. Acting as a divorce mediator, she was flexible enough to accommodate us with evening hours, and she was clear, professional and efficient from the beginning of the process to the end. All of our questions were answered thoroughly and promptly, resulting in a hassle-free conclusion to our case. Her rates were fair and all other expenses (filing fees etc.) were explained clearly and candidly ahead of time.

I would not hesitate in recommending her to others.



Professional and Thorough

Nancy mediated the financial agreement for my ex-husband and I over the course of five months. She was professional at all times. Nancy understands the law and is able to explain it in such a way that enables you to make good decisions. She followed through with whatever she indicated she would do and was clear and explicit about the process of separation and divorce.

My one and only reservation was that when I indicated to her that it was not a good idea for my ex and I to meet in person with her because of tensions between us at specific times towards the end of the process, she scheduled meetings anyway. I am not sure if she realized the seriousness of the situation.

Nonetheless, I hired her to represent me in my divorce after mediation was complete and all went well.


Was so Amazing

After having issues with a previous lawyer that resulted in needing a new lawyer, I hired Nancy to complete my divorce. She made sure that everything was very smooth and quickly completed. Nancy was very educated with the laws and steps needed to complete a divorce and was very honest with what could happen during the process. She made sure I had all the facts and possibilities so I could make informed decisions that would affect my life after the divorce was finalized. I love that she made sure to keep me updated constantly with everything that was happening and everything that needed to happen. I can't recommend her enough. She was available whenever I had questions or concerns and never made me feel as though anything I asked was a stupid question.


Family Law

Nancy displayed professionalism as my attorney. She questioned myself and others to provide facts and accuracy about my case. Her diligence was evident throughout my case. If I should need representation in her field of expertise, I would not hesitate to acquire her council.
